ramon-maidenRAMÓN MAIDEN (Barcelona, Spain, 1972)

Maiden was born in Barcelona, but today he lives and works in various cities across the globe, including New York, which he considers his second home. He never studied art and is entirely self-taught.

His work is internationally renowned thanks to the support of his myriad fans in the artistic tattoo world and several volumes published by Graffito Books that extensively document his creative career.

Although Maiden’s sources of inspiration are as mutable as his methods, history, the World Wars, the Victorian era and American life in the 1920s and 30s are themes that constantly resurface in his work. His baroque technique basically consists of using pen and Indian ink to alter the faces and bodies of people in posters, photographs or old prints, sometimes of a religious nature, covering them with beautiful, sophisticated tattoos.

He has exhibited at galleries in the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia and other countries around the world, often alongside artists of the stature of Mark Ryden or Shepard Fairey.

Description

The notion of the essence of evil being manifested in the female form is as old as history itself. From Eve, who stands accused of ruining what could have been an eternal idyllic existence or Pandora, custodian of a box that contained all the evils of humanity that she just couldn’t help herself but to open in order to spread those ills across the world. That could be considered mean. Or just plain bad. As Lux Interior of The Cramps once warned us “All Women Are Bad”.

There are no more mean gods or humans portrayed in popular culture and beyond than the female of the species. The bad girl is engraved in the consciousness as myth and continues to be represented by combining fear and terror with fascination and attraction.

La Fiambrera celebrates its FIFTH anniversary and the arrival of 2020 with a traditional annual group show that celebrates the bad girl. Thirty international artists bring together the strongest , most feared, most hated yet cool characters that inhabit this universe. Some well known meanies such as Maleficent, Bette Davis, Cruella DeVille and The Queen of Hearts rub evil shoulders with new figures created specifically for this special occasion by the twisted minds of their creators.

Roll up and feast your eyes on these dangerous but captivating dames. You know you want to.
